9:02 pm
what is happening. and it's happening at the high end of projection, so we're going to go round the world for you. we're going to show you the flash point. first of all, it is china. where the death toll is mounting from unprecedented flooding in central regions, at least 12 people now killed just in the city of young joe, which has been hit by the heaviest rainfall in generations. you've got those once in a century, floods the ones which swept through a parts of germany and belgium and netherlands in the middle of summer. let's not forget bass. and then the other extreme forest fire burning through siberia, which is let's not forget one of the coldest places on earth. in summer, siberia average is around 20 degrees in the south, 0 in the north this year. they was a peak, a $48.00 degrees on the 1st day of summer, and then over in the united states will dozens of wildfire burning there as well california and oregon. some of them are so large of now created their own weather systems and offending the smoke over to the east coast. and canada also experienced multiple reco temperatures. last month i peaked at just below 50 degrees celsius in
9:03 pm

9:05 pm
by climate change. these kind of a disaster going to becoming more and more frequent because of the change in climate. and we would see that this kind of disaster poses and very sort of huge economic and social loss. the city of jungle remains on high alert. rain is expected to continue until friday. residents have been advised to remain indoors to stay dry and safe between you i'll to 0 paging. as i said early, this is the story of extremes. the smoke from those wildfires in the west and states now blanketing the east coast, its even prompting a pollution alert in washington. d. c. worth 5 in the state of oregon, forced fire fighters into retreat for the last 10 days. petticoat have as this report band in your mission, and this is the western united states and according to scientists,
9:06 pm
this is the result of climate change. wildfires have been a part of life in this part of the country, but scientists say not like this. not this early, not this intense, not this many fires. in oregon, the bootleg fire scorching more than 1500 square kilometers of land. roughly the size of los angeles happening in the state that is already seen and share of weather challenges in february and we saw devastating ice storms over a half a 1000000 people lost power. last fall as you are well aware. we had unprecedented wildfires. we had over 4000 homes last and that fire and it is literally climate change playing out before eyes. the flyers and oregon are so intense, so they are creating their own weather system, producing massive dry thunderstorms with lightning and strong wind. the can start more fire. this is just one of the governors of fires burning throughout the
9:07 pm
american west. and there is a major shortage of firefighters. prison inmates are often used to flight fires, but hundreds have been released to prevent the spread of co good. and with this many fires burning and controlled, it is creating smoke that can be seen from satellite. it's drifting eastwards, producing hazardous air across the entire country that smoke is being transported by the wind lost in the atmosphere to placed as it normally doesn't end up at least in most years, making it all the way to the east coast of the us. many of these fires are started by accident, but it's a california couple has learned can have devastating consequences during a gender revealed car last year. prosecutor se, refugio and angela. you manners, you just smoke bomb, starting the elder auto fire the kill the firefighter. they've now been charged with manslaughter. this is the american west new reality, uncontrolled fires hazardous air homes and lives already lost, and many more believed likely to come in the months ahead. patty colleen al jazeera
9:08 pm
washington and so inevitably becomes about trying to slow this dramatic escalation in climate change. but there are still big gaps between what has been promised and what's actually being done. want to show you some charts, things from the climate action track, which is an independent group which tracks government climate action against the promises made in the paris climate agreements. so that's always our starting point . oh hi. like the line here. 1.5 degrees. we want to limit the increase in temperatures to 1.5 degrees celsius. the problem is, and this is the middle bar here under current policies. and this is by the year 2100. i should say it's a long term outlook, but we're looking at an almost 3 degree increase in temperature. if pledges and targets kick in, we could be looking at $2.00 degrees celsius. and if we are optimistic, if we were really positive, actually it looks more like that 2 degrees celsius. the optimism it comes from this
9:09 pm
sort of thing here. this is a chart looking at net 0 carbon emissions, in other words, trying to bring down carbon emissions. the one you want to focus on here is the sort of pink salmon colored part. i've just highlighted it rather than as the 27 percent of countries who have made no commitments, no commitment to the right carbon emissions. other countries clearly have, we've got china 25 percent taking up a lot there, the united states, 12 percent, but they need to reach those points. they need to stay at those targets. if we are even to get to the number of 2 degrees celsius, let alone one and a half. well, earlier i spoke to alina of a chin, clover, who is a distinguished policy fellow at the grantham, research institute on climate change in the environment. this is abundance school of economics and political science. she says what we think that affect the reports you've already seen shows that we are living with the impact of climate change
9:10 pm
right now. i think scientists increasingly clear that those of the frequency of those extreme events is increasing due to climate sense. and we'll see more of that in the future. the example of siberia and the impact of climate change that the facing at the moment. i think that's one of the example sofa really extreme change from that to change that just happening and different regions. there was also reports, for example, on the fresh what's the leg disappearing and non toxic of because of, of, of the i see it melting basically. so we will see more and more of such as amps, and i think it is very significant. the mounting of thermal will be a significant source of emissions as well because better for us captures a lot of greenhouse gases on as it stops melting, they are released in the atmosphere. so the speed of change and climate is going to be even greater. so i think that is a great urgency and all of the content is acting together and moving beyond
9:11 pm
politics after climate cannot wait for politics any longer. so we really need to act together and step up the efforts to move on. to other news on the leader of townsend, he is main opposition party has been arrested freeman and boy, and 10 other to the party members were detained over night in the city of wonder. they were planning a conference to demand constitutional reforms, but authority say they were arrested for inciting court unauthorized assembly. because public gatherings have been restricted to cur, the spread of coven 19th. what offices to partner with bad, any political party activities from taking place in this area? we're just making sure people ahead of the laws of the country that invited many people turning their plan, meeting from a party meeting into a public one. even though the plans were for an indoor meeting. with catherine saw his following developments from the ethiopian capital at a stop. this,
9:12 pm
a demo opposition party has released a statement confirming the arrest of 11 of the members, including the lead up room and boy, they rested very early this morning at around 230 a. m, who, how in, in one they had trouble there, to attend a constitutional forum, a meeting where they were to sensitize people on their push for constitutional reforms. they want, for example, to have the powers of the president reduced to have proper rules to ensure that their rees an independent electoral commission. and also to have laws that enable a president of the retirement to be tried in court for crime committed while on the home. now, the local administration there, i said that says this individual was flouting. call the 19 regulations that have been imposed like you know, having public gatherings which is banned, but some opposition lee does. and also officials off to them. a party saying that
9:13 pm
this really is continuing to roll back the democratic gains that have been made just going back to enforce or continue enforcing the policies that had been put in place by the late president. john pulled them up for food now times on. mia has a new president now. some. yes, to lou who had people are hopeful when she was appointed a few months ago that she was going to open up the democratic face. but now they're responsible for me. sometimes the news that has spoken to that, she's just going back to the footsteps of her predecessor and now focus kill research analyst in the africa program at chatham house. he says the towns in a position will struggle to achieve its goals. under this current government's been a long running debate among the opposition seeking constitutional reforms, particularly around on the electoral system. they argued times in the constitution
9:14 pm
which has been in place for many decades now. best a huge amount of executive power in the presidency allows the president to appoint m p. 's high court judges, and critically the, the national electoral commission. so the opposition are keen to revise some of the immense executive power in the president. see the president's petition, is that the constitution? well, the reforms will need to wait, but lifting the bond on political rallies that's in place and times in year. we'll also need to wait until she has had time to in her words, open up the economy. that's something that's consistent with with our reading, john magazine, you said more or less the same things, but you need the time to fix up the economy before coming back to this constitutional question. so i think certainly this is a debate. it's going to continue to rumble on for some time, especially in this is 1st time of the new president who they say,
9:15 pm
nigeria say to secure the release of 100 villages who were kidnapped 6 weeks ago. many of them were women and children, abducted last month in northwest and some foreign state. heavily armed criminal gangs are responsible for a series of kidnappings for ransom in the region. managers has more from a boucher those released include 80 women, some of them nursing mothers and 20 children were taken from several villages in some for a state and kept in the forest. that boat is dumb for niger as well as cathy states . these are the state why that is active military activity or group activities. my uncles and also a response from the military and police forces. now we've seen over the past few weeks, how the security forces have stepped up operations or interdiction rate and banded hide out in that area, claiming tough, it's called direct, it's and killing several ballads in those areas. we've also seen how the bundle responded. for example, a few days ago they killed at least
9:16 pm
a dozen police officers at a training camp in northwest nigeria that also shut down and military aircraft that conducted rates on their hide out a few days before. now, although the pilot is escaped, the bandits still continue to go. mean it's such an area in the north, west of the countries, the voters are saying that the ransom for the release of the over $120.00 kid not victims. but there are also hundreds of others was still being held by these groups operating in the north, west and north central parts of niger banditry activities has been on the rise for the last 3 years in nigeria, especially here in northern nigeria and central part of the jetta then i didn't president under pressure as ordered the military to conduct area and also ground approaches to free victims of kidnappings in all parts of nigeria. however, despite the approaches, there are hundreds of people kept by these bandits in various camps in the forest
9:17 pm
of niger and other parts of central and northern parts of nigeria. among them, hundreds of students taken from better schools, universities, islamic schools and other small schools are boarding schools in north part. another part and i get especially in the north west. why our schools have been forced to shut down because of increased activity by the government. 16, almost 17 minutes past this news. here's what's coming up. china and the us taking steps to reengage the find administration center, senior officials debating patrol also we report and synagogue, where a celebrations are being overshadowed by fear of a new search and covert cases. and in support the know walkie box secure the n b a championship. the 1st time in half a century in quite a bit of kind of news to get through with that with france, which has rolled out a new cove at 900 health, pass me to surgeon infections,
9:18 pm
people wanting to visit cinemas, museums, sports matches, other cultural venues, they will need proof of vaccination or negative test or to have recently recovered from the fire. but as natasha butler reports, this new system is not being welcomed by everyone. lingering on a terrace is one of the nice pleasures for many people in france, but soon need those with a covey pass showing that they are fully vaccinated. will have a negative p, c r test will be able to enjoy the experience. so we'll have to check customers. part is something this restaurant owner says is unfair. we consider that this is not our job to check your id and your family. we understand that this is certainly something necessary, but we are not fully men. the path which is now mandatory in cinema theaters and museums will be extended to large shopping centers and some transport. the french
9:19 pm
government hope it will reduce health risks and encourage people to get vaccinated got not be in no doubt. our goal, as always, is to take measures that are proportional to the health situation to guarantee public freedoms, while assuring the sanitary security of our citizens. the french president, the manual micro announced the new conveyed path roof last week. and since then, there has been a surge and the number of people booking vaccination appointments. within days, nearly 4000000 people had signed up for that 1st job. but it was every g. politicians said we weren't obliged to get the vaccine, but without a coven pass we have fewer freedom. so we decided to get it on the us in the past made us to now as we have planned, waiting until august to get vaccinated and the past is dividing opinion. these protestors in paris on sunday said the government trying to force people to get books and aided by eroding they write was one that was the cable should be given the freedom to choose whether or not they want to be vaccinated. so it's more
9:20 pm
democratic. some scientists say that france isn't a 4th wave fueled by the highly contagious delta co variant. the government says that the pulse will be necessary for as long as the virus is the threat. though some regarded as an anti democratic opinion polls suggest the 2 thirds of people in france supported as a way of hopefully avoiding another lockdown. natasha butler, i'll just sarah paris. the life expectancy of americans dropped by a year and a half in 2020. the biggest decline since world war 2. the centers for disease control, the cdc says it's mostly due to the pandemic. covered 19 accounting for more than a 10th of the record 3300000 deaths in the u. s. last year. it's also had a disproportionate effect on minorities, the life expectancy of black and hispanic americans dropped even more dramatically by an average of 3 years. now, let's say long term social and economic qualities made minority communities more vulnerable. during this pandemic in europe, most countries saw
9:21 pm
a drop as well. it was less than a year in south africa though as many as 4 years. his exxon, a p section with a global health advisor, electorate university college london school pharmacy, explaining to us the pressure on the why the health care system during the pandemic has contributed to this drug. it's not just about cobit itself when there are very high rates of transmission and early opening, et cetera. these types of factors, it means that when hospitals get overwhelmed, other surgeries and health procedures don't go ahead. so part of that lowered life expectancy is not just plain covert depth, but also cobit impact on the health care system itself. such that we saw other groups of people not being treated for routine and regular reasons this backlog. it certainly means that even when we're not in a cove, it's surge, that the health care system is working on overdrive anyhow. and that's something
9:22 pm
that i think gets forgotten or left out of the public discourse to this means that overall they're more likely for errors to occur. and we cannot continuously apply this type of pressure without looking at other solutions. and one of the solutions ensuring that those communities that are not more resistant to taking the vaccine again, there, there is a trend amongst being communities, hard to reach communities in terms of improving vaccination rates because it will, in some sense, also help to prevent other complications long cove it so it is so important that we get that vaccination rates up globally as high as possible. not just for the blind, individual life, but for to protect the health care system itself in me. and now, meanwhile, medical infrastructure is on the edge of collapse, the countries unable to cope with the rising number of coven infections. in fact, on tuesday, a senior politician from the former ruling now deposed in l. d party actually died
